Kidlitosphere Blogging Conference - Portland, OR


I went to the blogging conference at the Sheraton Hotel at the airport in Portland, Oregon, on Friday night. It wasn't far for me to go, about 10 minutes from my home. It was a perfect night for us to meet at the hotel and head downtown to Powell's Books. We mulled around chatting and checking out the books. Maureen Kearney was here from California, she's a children's librarian. Visit her at Confessions of a Bibliovore. Alma Alexander rode with us to Powell's. Then everyone was going to go on over to The Deschutes Brew Pub for dinner and a drink. Tomorrow the actual conference begins. I can hardly wait. Jone MacCulloch and Laina Taylor (author of Faeries of Dreamdark) put this entire conference together. Laini's husband, Jim Di Bartolo, was there too. He did the cover art for her book.

My posts will be popping up on this subject for days to come. There was wayyyyy to much to share in one or even two, or even three posts. I can't believe what a wonderful conference it was and for so little money (but keep that part our little secret).
